  5. Audi e-tron cold weather testing video

    General Audi EV Discussion
    Got this from Audi today via email. It's just a simple promotional video of Audi testing the e-tron in cold weather. As I was watching it though, I couldn't help but think that (as good as Tesla's are) I doubt they put this much into their testing efforts. I really wonder how many hour of...

  8. Soggy brakes

    Audi A3 e-tron
    I bought a used 2015 e-tron 2 months ago and I'm happy with everything except the brakes. They are fine for normal driving when you more or less only use the regen braking but the few times I've really needed to brake hard the response is terrible. There is absolutely no bite in the brakes at...

    General Charging Discussion
    I've currently got a Nissan Leaf and a tethered type 1 charger. I've also got an Audi etron (type 2) which I'm currently charging using the granny cable through the kitchen window.

    General Charging Discussion
    I've had a Nissan Leaf for 3 years which is going back soon. I've already bought an Audi A3 e-tron which will be its replacement. 3 years ago I got Chargemaster to fit a tethered Type 1 cable to my home, but of course I would now like a Type 2 tethered. When I called Chargemaster they said they...
  12. Worth getting Connect(ed)?

    Audi A3 e-tron
    I know you can add a SIM card to the car to get access to the Connect services such as Google maps. Is the extra functionality worth it? Which SIM card have any UK owners gone for? Cheers
  13. New A3 etron owner

    Ice Breakers
    Just picked up a Feb 16 ex demonstrator A3 etron from Lincoln Audi today. Got it on a pcp for £220 a month which is the same as I'm currently paying for our Leaf which seems very good, especially as it has over £2500 options. Our Nissan Leaf is going back next month after three brilliant years...
